Logan Paul discussed his relationship with Vince McMahon and whether he’d ever consider working full time with WWE.
YouTube star Logan Paul is set to team with The Miz at the upcoming WrestleMania 38, where the pair will take on Rey and Dominik Mysterio in tag team action. Paul has history with The Miz, with the star appearing on Miz TV on Raw back in August. His in-ring debut will be the second-straight year that he will be involved. At WrestleMania 37, the YouTube star was ringside as Kevin Owens defeated Sami Zayn. After the match Paul was given a Stunner by Owens.
After his year of making sporadic appearances in the WWE, Logan Paul spoke to talkSPORT’s Alex McCarthy about his relationship with Vince McMahon, revealing that the Chairman is like a stepfather to him and their interactions have been positive.
“Vince is like a step-dad to me. Does that make sense? He’s like the guy you have a good relationship with, a firm handshake, ‘how you doing? I respect you, I’m glad to have you here’ and it’s just a really positive relationship. He’s welcomed me with open arms and he’s been excited every time I go out there and perform and yeah, it’s been positive… If I can get more involved in the behind the scenes stuff with Vince’s approval, that would be fun.”
When asked if he’d consider a full time career with WWE after WrestleMania, Logan Paul said he’d love to do it, provided it works with his schedule and he’s able to continue loving wrestling as much as he does now. He says the decision ultimately lies with whether or not fans continue to react to him.
“Yeah, probably. It just has to make sense with my schedule. I’m doing so much stuff and I have to really be careful where I allocate my energy. This happened with boxing. At first I did it, I tried it out and I loved it, so I kept doing it. Today was the first day – because we had training today – I was like ‘oooh yeah, this is f****** fun.’ So again, I fall in love with this sport and I soak in the energy at WrestleMania and feel like there’s a future for me here, man, I’m gonna have to run with it.”
“But it’s not my decision, it’s up to the fans. Either love me or hate me – that’s great. But if they’re indifferent to me, we got a f****** problem and I’ll probably get out of this sport.”
While Logan Paul was involved at WrestleMania 37 in the corner of Sami Zayn, WrestleMania 38 will mark his in-ring debut.
